DOES GOD APPRECIATE SILLY?

Silly to ask, look at that monkey.

He does not just climb trees,

“Monkey shines!”  Have you heard tell?

Imitates all he sees!

.

.

Right in the sand, a varmint there,

Suppose God made him, too?

And sharks, terrifying the deep,

Devils of the depth, storm through!

.

.

Dread of the seas, sure, sharks plentiful!

Fearful, ready, look out there!

With the look of savage greed ready,

Bloody jaws, no care!

.

.

But it was a big fish that swallowed Jonah!

And his ticket onto dry land.

Sure, he knew that God was not kidding

When slimy and white on that sand!

.

.

Those monstrous fish

Garbage collectors, clear water, I recall well.

Untroubled starfish 20-feet down,

Dumagette, Negros, tell!

.

.

Dove in one night, near scared silly,

This monstrous, huge fish waiting,

To gobble me up is what I thought.

I swirled and out!  I am not baiting!

.

.

Told natives there, they laughed,

“They just garbage collectors, they not mean.

Just keep the waters clean!”

.

.

Told them about Jonah, His big fish!

Surprised they wanted to know,

“When this happen?”

So I told them, “Oh, so long ago!”

.

.

Was I a missionary then?

No, just Army Services, ever so long ago.

No, not a missionary then in Army Service

World War II, years ago!

Top-most Island in the Philippines.

Half-way through combat row!

.

.

A silly poem do not you suppose?

Oh, it happened!  Sure true!

Do you suppose God allows stupidity?

Sure!  Look at me and you!

.

.

All trivia aside, do not you believe

There is ever laughter in Heaven?

Why suppose then that bold monkey up there

Or invented the number 7?

.

.

No, this silliness not becoming at all!

Did I fall out of that tree?

Sure, see myself in that mirror again.

Monkey looks back at me!
